wields-hammer (for building and destroying), 2023 by Luke Van H
Van H combines various digital and material processes to make paintings that inhabit a shifting space somewhere closely-adjacent to our own realities. Each painting operates as a portal into the larger body of work and ever-expanding garden. Individual pieces can be understood as icons of devotion and stopping points in one’s pilgrimage through the garden.
The paintings are produced in a series of meticulous, sequential steps, using the digital drawing as a map. Thus the object becomes a distorted duplicate of its digital originator. Spawned from a digital plan. Shut out from its other pixelated half. Subjected to the deterioration of time and space.
